You are one of the few I feel should stay a Democrat. Some people do not do well on their own and need to live in a group think environment.

Come to think of it, you surfer boys should bow east and give thanks to the Northeast, otherwise California would have been a few Mexicans, a collection of criminals in San Francisco and a couple orange groves.

This sounds like a Bud Light commercial; less filling, tastes great, less filling.

Who cares where the high tech stated.

The bottom line is there won't be any new inventions in America if we don't defend the liberty that allows for innovation.

Mainstream media leaves you depressed, dumbed down, empty and hopeless. What kind of crap will they focus on next to distract us from what's really important -Penis Ipads maybe?

Truth based media gives you a heads up and broadens your horizons. It protects your family, health, and life savings. It's your decision...

Once you have a taste of truthful reporting you never go back to mainstream contrived corporate media.

These hosts bash Republicans and Democrats equally because they know both sides are illuminati bought puppets out to screw us.

Give alternative news sources a chance before you knock them. Download these shows to your MP3 players and listen on your way to work or whatever. All you need from mainstream media is breaking news and traffic/weather. You can listen to all these shows on your smart phone as well.

The host does a good job of teaching about the bible and does not fear political correctness.

These radio hosts should do a show together or at least make guest appearences on each others shows. They all value truth and liberty in their own way.

Here's my take on it. Don't be afraid to speak out as we are all on some type of list by now:

Another Misguided Pandering Strategy for the GOP

Marc Ambinder proposes that the GOP apply its failed outreach to Hispanics to Asian-Americans (via Andrew):

But if Republicans were to rid themselves of their anti-immigrant wing, or if they choose not allow their primaries to be controlled by it, there is no real reason why Asian-Americans can’t become a true swing constituency.

The GOP’s association with American Christianity and with upward mobility are enough for Asian-Americans to give that party a look, but the Asian-American vote has become more and more Democratic as the average Asian-American voter has spent a longer amount of time inside the U.S.“On paper, Asians—culturally conservative, family values, entrepreneurship, fiscally conservative, meritocracy—seem tailor-made for Republicans,” says Tony Lee, a Korean-American conservative and editor at the publication Human Events.“But, like with Cubans, the younger generation of Asians has not voted as Republican as one may have expected or assumed.”

The reasons for this aren’t all that hard to understand. There needs to be a distinction between what conservative Republicans think their party represents to people outside the party and how non-Republicans perceive it. For example, if the GOP were actually fiscally conservative when in power, it might make sense for fiscally conservative voters to flock to them. If it were the party of entrepreneurship and upward mobility (rather than, say, the party of corporatism that is oblivious to wage stagnation and declining social mobility), that might be appealing. On the other side, the voters in question are not being as accurately represented as they could be.

I don’t know if Republicans can increase their support among Asian-Americans. It may not be possible, and it may not be worth the trade-off in the votes that the party could lose in the process. They certainly won’t succeed by applying simplistic and predetermined solutions that ignore the many reasons why these voters are not currently interested in what the GOP has to offer.

The GOP Continues To Believe The Solution Lies In Better Euphemisms

Over and over, we see that this is basically the only real debate between Republicans: Do you state your beliefs bluntly, or do you bury those beliefs in euphemism, hoping that you can hoodwink low information voters into voting for you? Certainly, Bobby Jindal’s celebrated comments about how the GOP to “stop being the stupid party” had nothing to do with their stupid policies. He simply meant that they should be better at employing euphemism when promoting stupid, dangerous, ill-advised, hateful policies:

“It is no secret we had a number of Republicans damage our brand this year with offensive, bizarre comments — enough of that,” Jindal said.“It’s not going to be the last time anyone says something stupid within our party, but it can’t be tolerated within our party. We’ve also had enough of this dumbed-down conservatism. We need to stop being simplistic, we need to trust the intelligence of the American people and we need to stop insulting the intelligence of the voters.”

By “trust the intelligence of the American people”, however, he clearly means “assume Americans are stupid enough to fall for our euphemisms designed to make our odious beliefs sound less awful than they are”. Which, frankly, strikes me as an insult to the American voters.

The GOP Continues To Believe The Solution Lies In Better Euphemisms

Joan Walsh at Salon has a great piece up about Darrell Issa today, particularly the way that he’s a favorite punching bag for Republicans who want to appear “reasonable”. As she notes, the disagreement between Issa and his conservative critics, however, is purely about aesthetics.

Issa’s extremist idiocy lets “reasonable” Republicans denounce him and/or his rhetoric, while they continue their own ethically, intellectually and politically blinkered crusades against President Obama. Sure, Sen. John McCain says it was wrong to call Carney a “paid liar”– but also on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” he compared the IRS mess to Ronald Reagan’s deadly Iran-Contra scandal. Um, no.

Scandal-drunk Sen. Lindsey Graham says Issa went too far when he said the IRS agents who keyword-targeted Tea Party groups “were directly being ordered from Washington.” But he continued to hype the IRS story.“At the end of the day, the IRS scandal really is scary,” he told Fox’s Brian Kilmeade.“How would you like your own government to turn on you?” Is that really what happened, Lindsey Graham? And if so, it happened most brutally to a Democratic group, Emerge America, which had its tax-exempt status revoked.

Over and over, we see that this is basically the only real debate between Republicans: Do you state your beliefs bluntly, or do you bury those beliefs in euphemism, hoping that you can hoodwink low information voters into voting for you? Certainly, Bobby Jindal’s celebrated comments about how the GOP to “stop being the stupid party” had nothing to do with their stupid policies. He simply meant that they should be better at employing euphemism when promoting stupid, dangerous, ill-advised, hateful policies:

We need to stop being simplistic, we need to trust the intelligence of the American people and we need to stop insulting the intelligence of the voters.”

By “trust the intelligence of the American people”, however, he clearly means “assume Americans are stupid enough to fall for our euphemisms designed to make our odious beliefs sound less awful than they are”. Which, frankly, strikes me as an insult to the American voters.

The GOP Continues To Believe The Solution Lies In Better Euphemisms

The College Republicans have also suggested that Republicans need to be more adept at euphemism instead of actually changing anything. In a recent report on what it takes to attract young voters, the recommendation was, at least on some issues like gay rights, to be better at employing euphemism.

On the “open-minded” issue, yes, we will face serious difficulty so long as theissue of gay marriage remains on the table. In the short term, the party oughtto promote the diversity of thought within its ranks and make clear that wewelcome healthy debate on the policy topic at hand. We should also strongly oppose the use of anti-gay rhetoric.

Unfortunately, there’s not a “nice” way to say that you oppose someone’s basic human rights. Maggie Gallagher is showing what a farce this kind of thinking is, trying to claim that one can somehow believe that heterosexuals are better than gay people without it actually being homophobic, even though that’s the definition of homophobia.

Of course, when they emphasize euphemism, Republicans know that they only mean to outsiders. They have a wide swath of very literal-minded, hyper-conservative voters who need you to be blunt when speaking to them, or they may think you’ve gone soft. Unfortunately for them, the internet makes it hard to have one message for one set of people and another for another set, because sites like this one, Media Matters, and Right Wing Watch make sure to publicize messaging that was meant for conservative-only ears.

Hispanics didn't fall for our sh**, let's go for Asians.
Asians are smarter, more educated, wealthier...

And yet, Hispanics didn't fall for our sh**.

Round and round, round and round
The wheels on the bus go round and round
